OK, I'm not posting this to start up another argument about how much I like Bright Eyes. I think you all know how much I like them so I don't think you need to hear that anymore. I do want to suggest a couple songs to those of you who might not know very much of their stuff. This is also to show those of you that think C. Oberst is just a whiny singer that he doesn't just scream and whine in all his songs like you think he does. So if you are interested may I suggest:
Take it Easy (love nothing): give this one a chance because the layers build and build as the song goes on
Smoke Without Fire: a good little folk song duo with M. Ward
Tourist Trap: a really slow song, but just imagine yourself sitting around a campfire in the desert somewhere.
I think this shows their range and the fact that not every song is Conor just screaming about drinking, dying, or whatever else you think of him. If you don't like these songs, that's cool. If you've never really heard Bright Eyes then maybe you'll find something you enjoy in these songs. Cheers.
Thanks for this, I like Smoke Without Fire. I've never listened to Bright Eyes before, and despite all of the Conor Oberst hate and "WRONG KID DIED" stuff flying around, I figured I'd give it a shot.
Come on HG, I am in the correct thread....no harm, no foul. I am not forcing 4 youtube videos on anybody, people can choose to listen to these songs if they want to or not. But hey, someone listened to one of the songs and liked it. That's what this thread is about. Now be gone with you!! Ha ha ha!!
